they're troubled by what the united nations ambassador susan rice is telling them. and now the acting cia director has some serious problems as well. president obama pulls out all the stops to keep middle class taxes low, but will congress go along with higher taxes for the rich? plus, a long secret u.s. plan, get this, to explode an atomic bomb on the moon. what were they thinking? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we may be at the tipping point for one of the most important decisions president obama needs to make as he begins his second term. on capitol hill republicans including moderate republicans are sending the president a clear warning, don't nominate susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice is the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she spent a second day meeting with senators trying to explain some of her inaccurate comments she made after the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us now from capitol hill with the ver

at the united nations. i do think she's explained that what she said about benghazi was the intelligence that she was given. and she'll have an opportunity as she meets with senators to further explain that position. >> do you think they're open to giving her a fair hearing? because some pretty tough things have been said about her. >> well, it's unfortunate that much of that discussion has gotten so personal. she does need to get a fair hearing. i'm hopeful senator mccain is a patriot, i think he'll give her a fair hearing. i'm certain my colleague from new hampshire, and of lindsey graham. so i do believe that it's in the country's interest to give her a fair hearing and to let her explain the situation, the position that she took on benghazi. >> senator, good to have you on the program. thank you. >> nice to be with you. >> let's go back to the strategy on the part of the white house. and obviously we're in this mess because they couldn't make a deal the last time. if the president's backup strategy is, and susan, this is what the l.a. times is reporting that they have to go off the f

the motive there is not clear. and a fox urgent now. for the first time tonight, united nations ambassador susan rice is fighting back against her critics. first the back story here. she went on five sunday morning talk shows days after the attack on the consulate in benghazi that killed our ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. and said it was due to anger over that film insulting islam. we now know that was wrong. u.s. officials acknowledged it was a coordinated terror attack. republic lawmakers said ambassador rice was either deliberately misleading or quote incompetent. just minutes ago she spoke at the u.n. and took those critics to task. listen. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. everyone, particularly the intelligence community, has worked in good faith to provide the best assessment based on the information available. >> last week
to the united nations, you go well beyond unclassified talking points in the daily preparation and responsibilities for that job. >> rice met with senator lieberman who asked whether rice was coached by the administration before her sunday show appearances. >> she said no, she was not given messaging points at all by the white house. >> in a written statement, rice who was joined by the acting c.i.a. director on the hill said, "we explain that the talking point provideed by the intelligence community and the initial assessment upon which they were based were incorrect in key respect." there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. full week after the attack on david letterman, the president was still blaming the anti-islam video. >> extremists and terrorists use this as an excuse to attack a variety of the embassies, including the one, the consulate in libya. >> the united nations on september 25, critics charge mr. obama double down. >> the united states government had nothing to do with the video. i believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humani
an effective purposeful and impressive ambassador of the united nations. she has many, many qualifications to serving e in higher office. i've been in both positions, serving in democratic and republican administrations in the past, of going out in public and explaining views. i know it's always a collective effort to try to determine what one says to explain a position. and so i just think that that -- that the focus on her, the sole focus on her is not correct. i think she deserves better treatment than this. >> congressman, what is your response to today? >> i agree with ambassador burns completely. i think susan rice has been an extraordinary ambassador to the united nations. she's smart, hard working, et c ethical, honest and just a superb candidate for secretary of state, if the president makes that decision. i find it mind-boggling that some of the gop senators continue to go after her. it's completely unjustified. and i can only conclude that having failed to deny the president a second term, they now want to deny him the cabinet of his choice. but that is a terrible disservice to
was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way these grim-faced gop senators tell it, susan rice's attempt to calm their criticism backfired. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> i'm more disturbed now than i

israeli positions, some being fired toward israel. >> it's not as if there are united nations personnel monitoring this border crossing if you will. >> no. it's a very surreal system where you actually don't run into any human beings for several steps of the process. it's all done through surveillance cameras, through doors being electronically opened for you and gradually, you know, the closer you get with each door that you go through you're one step closer toward israel and one step, you know -- they've examined you one step further. it's a fascinating system to see up close. >> yeah. at some point -- and you were there for three, four, five days? >> right. >> you must have been scared out of your mind. >> you know, you're definitely in a heightened state of awareness. i wouldn't say scared because i've been in a lot of these areas over the years. but it's always shocking to see the conditions that people are forced to live in in a war zone. and to see what life is like for somebody and who's the only difference between them and myself is the accident of birth and what zip code they
collins, but clearly it is her responsibility as an ambassador to the united nations to do much more than that. >> before anyone can make an intelligent and decision, we need to do a lot more. to this date, we do not have the fbi interviews of the survivors from after the attack. we do not have the basic information about what was said about the night of the attack as of this date. i remember the episode pretty well. our democratic friends felt like they did not have the information needed to make the alteration to make about john bolton. democrats dug in their heels and a they were not going to consider the nomination until they would get basic answers to their concerns. the concerns i have far greater today there and they were before and we are not even close to getting a basic cancer. >> i have many more questions that need answering. >> that was about 10 minutes ago after meeting with u.n. ambassador susan rice, mentioned as a possible replacement for outgoing secretary of state, hillary clinton. coming up, more discussion on the so-called fiscal cliff this timeless and a majority wit
good ambassador to the united nations and there's so many issues, andrea, that confront the united states from the global economic recession to the afghan war to iran and north korea to the arab revolutions to what's happening in egypt today, i really think that those are the issues that ought to be in front of our congress as well as our administration officials. >> nick, what do you think is going on? this seems to be a proxy war? >> well, it does. it does. i mean, obviously there are a lot of unanswered questions about benghazi and i've certainly believe that members of congress in both parties have a right and responsibility to asks those questions, but there are official commissions that will soon speak to those very questions. there's the commission headed by ambassador pickering and chairman mike mullen, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, other by the u.s. government. these investigations have been done in a deliberate, comprehensive way and we will soon know what their findings are. i think it's better for us as a collective here in the united states, to wait for

leading our mission in the united nations. she was put in the spotlight in order to communicate what the intelligence community and administration believed to be the best way to communicate the attack on benghazi. rightly now congress is looking at the question of what went wrong, but the question about whether or not she is personally responsible for it is a bit far-fetched, and it's really going into a point where members of congress are making themselves look silly. they're day in and day outhave different statements. the house sent a letter to house republicans on posing her potential nomination to secretary of state. less than half signed onto it. there's not much appetite for this fight. we saw it in the campaign, and we're not sure where this is heading. it does seem like a losing hand where she ends up in administration. >> mike morrell was there with susan rice. there's this notion that there's an obsession here. it seems as if, especially when it comes to senators mccain, graham and ayotte, there's a lot of their attention directed to ambassador rice, but not a real hard pu
